Travel Image of the Month - August 2020 : 'Time to chat - Jamah Masjid' - Tony Beane
So where did August go? In fact was that the Summer? It no sooner seemed like August had arrived than it was all over. Maybe it was the fact that throughout the month there was a constant flow of shots from our colleagues in the Travel Group, so much so that I didn't put out a reminder and we still managed to receive 24 shots of great quality and diversity.
How many competitions are there where you get images like Allen Hartley's 'Taking A Break' shot on Mount Everest, alongside Sandra Mason's 'Ryugyong Hotel' taken in North Korea and Graham Vulliamy's atmospheric 'Trabocchi Coast'? Each intriguing in their own way.
As ever the selection of this month's winner is down to this month's judge who in this case was Keith Pointon. His comments were
1st 'Time to chat - Jamah Masjid' -
"This was not an easy choice.
The image is nicely composed and the reclining figure, framed within the arch, contrasts with the surrounding area. Also the horizontal posture and lines give a feeling of peacefulness. A clear sense of place. The two figures are engaged in a conversation and oblivious of all that surrounds them."
